Rodcast 137: Falling Slowly

Just in time for the Super Bowl.

Apologies in advance if you hate long things, but I think this one had even funner conversations than usual. The miracle of Skype allowed a better connection with Rhett and the bulk of discussion centered around some of the really far out Sunday school stuff from the Pre-mortal life, Creation and Fall. The result is a merry Mexican standoff of circular logic, disagreements and switched loyalties.

Quick note from Jon: While we were talking about lesson 2, I mentioned that we'd speak more of foreordination "two lessons from now." I meant to ask if Adam and Eve were foreordained to transgress, but I think I neglected to. Does this idea lend credence to what Rhett joked about in Judas being foreordained to betray Christ?

Here is that link from By Common Consent going of the Sunday school lesson on The Fall.

Here is the link about tithing that Rhett was talking about.
